Plant pot demo’

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Adam Keeling heads the production team of plant-pot makers at the world renowned Whichford Pottery in Warwickshire. An audience of 24 packed into the Wobage throwing studio earlier this month; it included evening class students and UWIC Ceramics undergraduates as well as the Wobage crew. All of us greatly enjoyed Adam’s large-ware demonstration, where he threw a number of huge pots, several of them in multi-parts. The ease with which he handled substantial amounts of clay was awesome and captivating. He spoke confidently about technique, answering questions mid-process and discussing his life and work at Whichford. Thank you Adam and to all that helped make for such a successful and educational event. Many thanks to J.P.Kavanagh who has very generously donated the images on this post.
